North Pole Middle School
Principal's Update - August 23, 2021
August 23rd - August 27th Schedule
Hello Parents and Families
Our first three days of school are in the books and they were terrific. I know you may be thinking, “Well he has to say that.” but I don’t and I tell you the first three days were genuinely terrific. The kids have been very well behaved, helpful to one another, courteous to one another and staff and just a pleasure to have back in the building. A school is just another building…until the kids arrive, then it’s true purpose shines. North Pole Middle School faculty is thankful you have chosen to send your kids back to in person learning.
School Start Times and Availability
Our new school start and end times for students are 7:50 a.m. to 2:20 p.m.
